    I'm looking for some engineers or professionals who work with carbon fibre. I would like to produce some moulds and get some small carbon planks built up. When I say small I mean about 70mm wide by 7mm thick by 60cm long. I would farm this task out to some chinese online carbon...

    If you stock it, they will come

    I was wondering what is considered to be a fair request of an LBS? I have a great LBS, but they don't stock the regular items that I like that I am regularly replacing (eg Conti GP4000s tyres, Kool Stop Salmon brake pads, Schwalbe SV15 tubes, Morgan Blue Race Oil, SRAM Power Cork Bar Tape)...

    What ever happened to Spanky Ham?

    Things just aren't the same without the pig around here. It's been a while, but I miss his input to this forum. Did he become a roadie and go to weight weenies instead? Did he end up a Yakuza mob hit? Are you still there, lurking in the shadows of the trading section? Where for art thou Spanky?

    Near Miss this morning - An observation of perception and bias

    This morning I was on the footpath waiting for a set of lights to change. I was off the bike, waiting for the little green walk man so I could walk across. “Bing! Tock tock tock’ the little green man goes. I step out onto the road and get two steps in when this lady in a jeep Cherokee...

    Anyone using it? Considering a 10spd group upgrade for roadie. Only trouble is, all I can find on the net is glowing reviews. I can't find any negative comments. Anyone use it, and if so do you have any negatives to report? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What are the ladies riding these days?

    My wife wants a new bike. Her current bike is a single speed beach cruiser. The geraing and geo is hardly suitable for the 'up and down' terrain of Hilly Hobart, and it's certainly not agile enough for commuting along the bike track and navigating city streets. Currently looking at an...

    Wheel size - Let's start a fight

    Just kidding, need some nOob advice. I have a 29er SS and want to employ it for commuting duties. I want slicks / city tyres. Can I just put 700c tyrs on it (35cmaybe?) or do I have to buy 29" specific tyres. There seems to be misinformation everywhere I look. Some say 29" is the same as...

    SPOTTED Giant dh Comp 18" Frame Hobart area

    Suspected stolen bike spotted. May be legit, but there are always a few warning signs that I cannot ignore.
